SPORT FISHING IN SOUTHERN BAJA
TROLLING, TOPWATER, FLY & SURF
IINSHORE, OFFSHORE & DEEP DROPPING
One of the best things about fishing the East Cape and Los Barriles
areas of Baja is not only the diversity of game fish species, but
the diversity of techniques used to catch them. Trolling teasers and
live or dead baits offshore yields billfish, tuna, dorado and wahoo.
Deep dropping on rocky structure gives you the chance to battle brutes
like Cubera Snapper, Grouper and Yellowtail. Working surface lures
and plugs delivers a mixed bag of Dorado, Tuna, Jack Cravelle and
Roosterfish. Flyfisherman will find the experience of sight casting
to teased Billfish or schooling Dorado and Tuna irrestible. Surf casting
often ends up with a Roosterfish battle you won't soon forget!
